Thank you  :)
Tricky to get information as my dad was an only child, and he passed away 16 years ago x

You will need to buy a copy of the 1911 marriage cert to establish William Tate's age/occupation/fathers name

Have you looked for the family on the 1939 register which may help with a birthyear for him

Using Horsham RD as that seems to be where marriage/births etc were registered - there is a death in 1960 for a William Tate b 1888 - a bit younger than Margaret

Births December qtr 1887 
William Tate Horsham    2b   320

He is living in the Horsham RD in 1901 - all b Rudgwick except mum Kate

William Tate   46 - boot & shoe maker
Kate     35 b Brighton
William     13 b Rudgwick
Harold     11
Kate          7
Claudy       5
John     3
RG13 Piece 952 Folio 40 Page 3

You still need that 1911 cert to see if age and fathers details match up

This TATE family is in my ancestry.  My husband's grandfather was Harold Tate, brother to William Tate who had two sets of twins.
I have some info on him but haven't expanded it as I am concentrating on more direct lines.
I have his date of birth listed for 1888 and marrying MArgaret Louise Ferrier. 

The twins in question are Patience and Prudence born 7.7.1921 in Horsham.

I do have a newspaper clipping (somewhere I hope) where my husband's mother (Margaret Eleanor Tate - Margot) was an attendant at one of the twins' weddings.

William's father was a shoe maker. Harold was a carpenter and started a brickworks - Rudgwick Brickyard, and I do know that William worked for him for a time.  All the Tate brothers were in the Rudgwick Silver Band that won several medals at competitions.  At WW1 the whole band enlisted together.

Malcolm Francis, who is a very active member of the Rudgwick Preservation Society is married to the great niece of both William and Harold and they still live in Rudgwick.  Malcolm's grandfather was also in the band and his father worked for the Brickyard.

Rachael is the oldest child of William and Margaret, born 28.5.1912, then a first set of twins - Mabel Joan and William Geoffrey, born 2.1.1915, then Molly who was born and died in 1919, and then Patience and Prudence.

Patience died in 1953 and Prue in 2005.  Margot passed away in 2009.  I have the names of who they married and the year of marriage.

Margot married Percival William Longman in 1941 and emigrated to Australia in 1951 and there are now children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
